No Space for a Dining Room? Hang It Up!!

We have a little round beach house on the South Coast of South Africa. It's only 60 square meters (or 645 square feet) and finding space is always a problem. One of the things we definitely didn't have space for was a dining room. So we hung it up.
The "Don't Mind the Mess" table was made using a piece of pine, measuring 55 cm x 45 cm, which we sealed with a white primer, added the decal and covered with three layers of Annie Sloan Chateau Grey. Once the paint was dry, we simply removed the decal and gave the table a few coats of clear wax to protect. The table is attached to the wall using a T-hinge and rawl bolts. My ever careful hubby wanted to make sure we could dance on this table, lol.
We found the wooden fold up chairs on sale at Mr P Home and painted them a vibrant lime green and hung them using white square cup hooks.
Now we have a dining room that's a functional, space saving work of art when it's not in use.
It looks so much better than a big blank wall.
And when we're ready to eat, we simply take down the chairs, flip up the table and dine in our own little bistro cafe.

    Beautifully done. What brand and color is the paint you used on the chairs? The color is fantastic. What a fun space you've created.

    I have looked for the chair hooks forever and can't find any!!! Where can I get them???????
